Longest Stones shows

This may have been brought up here before, I've no idea. Have the Stones ever played a show that went beyond a couple of hours plus a few minutes or so? If so, what did they play to just jam on out? I ask because of the following link regarding marathon concerts.

Knebworth 1976, at least in terms of number of songs.

The Steel Wheels and Urban Jungle tour shows’ tended to be longer than what they have been in more recent years. The set-lists were longer, of course. Just imagine: 25 songs, sometimes! I recollect a lot of moaning when these - seemingly at the time - abbreviated nineteen-song shows started to become an occurrence during the European leg of the Licks Tour.

I think the longest must be Knebworth and Philadelpia 89 (opening night of the SW tour).

Knebworth and then first shows of 89 and 94 tours (27 songs - Philly 1 in 89 theoretically had 28 songs, however since power failure during Shattered they didn't actually play it in full).

LA Friday totals almost 2 hours 40 mins. YCAGWYW clocks in at almost 16 mins, MR is half a minute longer, SFTD well over 10 mins, (obviously) with a fair amount of jamming going on.

Also true, but still they played everything super slow. Might have added a few more minutes to the already longer setlist.

I think it's Philly 89 opening show. I was there and when we were leaving many of us were shouting 3-hour show!!! The power outage at the end of Shattered lasted about 10 to 15 minutes or maybe longer. I remember I was so scared that the show would be canceled.

Not sure if any recording have the entire delay, probably not, why would any, but if you factor in the delay, which technically is part of the show length, then I think we have a winner, Philly 1989 Opening Night!

If you count the break there's a clear winner with Charlottesville 2005 with a break that lasted nearly an hour due to a bomb warning and a total showtime of 3 hours!

If we're counting mid show delays, there was one ABB show in 2005 (forgot which city it was) which was interrupted by a bomb scare. How long the break was?

The Guns N' Roses show featured is not their longest. They played for 3h45min in 2017 La Forum

Also Tokyo Dome 2009 is a match with the 1991 La Forum show 3h40mins

It certainly felt like the longest ever
